Healthwatch York wants to hear what you know about them and the work that they do. They are currently running the Healthwatch York Awareness Survey 2019 so they can understand how well they are doing at representing your views on health and social care.

Healthwatch York aims to put you at the heart of health and social care services in the city. This survey looks at how much people in York know about their work, such as:

  • Their signposting, information and advice work, including guides to mental health and wellbeing and dementia support
  • Their reports, including their recent report on LGBTQ+ experiences in health and social care
  • Their website, where you can leave positive and negative feedback about all local health and care providers.

If you live, work or study in York then this survey is for you.

Emily Abbott, Healthwatch York Deputy Manager confirmed: “We really need to know what people think about Healthwatch York, and how well our work is understood. This means we can do more of what works, and reach more people to tackle the issues that matter to them most.”

Surveys should be completed and returned by Friday 27 September 2019. Additional copies are available at the Healthwatch York office.
